QTC, health services company, to open center in San Antonio
Expansion will create 252 jobs and a $3 million investment
AUSTIN — QTC Management, Inc., a provider of disability and occupational health examination services for veterans, federal and business employees, will establish a new operational service center in San Antonio, Gov. Greg Abbott announced Thursday, June 10.
The project will create 252 new high-wage jobs and more than $3 million in capital investment. The Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) extended a grant to QTC Management, Inc., of $849,000. This includes incentive funding for jobs created for military veterans. QTC is a subsidiary of Leidos Holdings, Inc., based in Reston, Va.
“I congratulate QTC on establishing a new operational service center and expanding their workforce in San Antonio,” Abbott said. “QTC joins the ranks of thousands of companies — from healthcare to financial services, manufacturing, high tech, and beyond — that have chosen to grow in the Lone Star State. Our model of low taxes, reasonable regulations, and welcoming business climate, as well as our skilled, growing, and diverse workforce, continues to attract investments that keep Texas the best state for business expansion and job creation.”
OTC’s CEO Larry Schaefer and Liz Porter, President and CEO of Leidos Health Group, said they are excited about expanding QTC’s operations in San Antonio and the prospect of hiring employees from the regional workforce. Texas has the second largest workforce in the nation.
“We are thrilled to grow our Texas footprint in San Antonio. With this new center, we’ll provide top-notch medical and disability exams for veterans, federal employees, and the San Antonio business community,” Porter said. “Thank you to Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Enterprise Fund for helping support this project.”
San Antonio and Bexar County elected officials and representatives for the San Antonio Economic Development Partnership said they were excited about the growth of new high-wage jobs and the growth of the healthcare and technology industries in San Antonio.
“Our foundation as Military City, USA, paired with a strong healthcare and tech workforce made San Antonio extremely competitive for QTC’s expansion,” said Jenna Saucedo-Herrera, San Antonio Economic Development Foundation President and CEO. “QTC will grow its Texas office in San Antonio to approximately 700 professionals directly serving our nation’s military reservists and National Guard personnel.”
